It is based in Ponte Vedra Beach, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida. Its official name is written in all capital letters, i.e. “PGA TOUR”. The PGA Tour became its own organization in 1968 when it split from the PGA of America, which is now primarily an association of golf professionals, such as instructors and club managers.
Tournament players first formed their own organization, the Association of Professional Golfers (APG). Later, in 1968, the players abolished the APG and agreed to operate as the PGA “Tournament Players Division”, a fully autonomous division of the PGA, overseen by a new 10-member Tournament Policy Board.
The name then officially changed to “PGA Tour” in 1975. In 1981, it had a marketing dispute with the PGA of America and decided to officially change its name. From the end of August of that year it becomes “TPA Tour”, which stands for “Tournament Players Association”.
The dispute was resolved within seven months and the name of the tour reverted to being “PGA Tour” in March 1982.
